A late evening view from the road leading to Agathis Camp at Maliau.
Agathis Camp is at the bottom of the valley below. On the horizon is the southern rim of the Maliau Basin, a stiff climb at the start of your trek. This hill slope is reputed to be a favoured haunt of the rare Bulwer’s Pheasant when oaks are fruiting. Trekkers used to camp overnight at Agathis Camp after walking in from the Maliau Study Centre but with the new road they can start climbing immediately. More recently Agathis camp has been damaged by elephants and is no longer in use.
